July 4th Chamber Chatter

The City of Fort Payne will hold the annual Independence Day Celebration on Thursday, July 2nd, at the Fort Payne Sports Complex.  The gates open at 4 PM.

The response to the new location was very positive.  The crowd enjoyed the larger space as well as all the amenities of the complex.

Inflatables will be an addition to the playground for the kids.

The live entertainment will be Sweet Tea Trio.  These three young ladies hail from different parts of Alabama.  They are Kate Falcon, Southside; Victoria Camp, Tuscaloosa; and Savannah Coker, Birmingham.

Sweet Tea Trio have joined together to give country fans their first taste of an all female trio since the Dixie Chicks and the Pistol Annies.

They are all singers, songwriters, and musicians. A blend of southern charm and a little country twang is their trademark.

Free popcorn, peanuts and soft drinks will be available at the concession stands starting at 5 PM.  BBQ, lemonade, shaved ice and homemade fried pies will be sold.

Heil has partnered with the City to help sponsor this event.  Additional parking will be available at the Heil Parking lot for $2 or 2 canned goods.  All proceeds will benefit local charities.  Heil will also give drink “Koozies” to people who park at Heil and the sports complex.

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy the event. The fireworks will start at 9 PM.

Call the Fort Payne Recreation Department for more information at 256- 844-6571.

Happy Fourth of July from the Fort Payne Chamber Board of Directors and staff!
